Turkey has started to see good economic results from the peace process, especially in the eastern and southeastern provinces along with the state incentive system, which was adopted on June 20, 2012.

“The number of certified subsidized investments has increased to 566 in these provinces in the first five months of 2013 from 310 in the same period of last year. The number of new jobs has increased from 10,000 to 26,000, and the amount of fixed direct investments has risen fourfold to 8.1 billion Turkish Liras,” Turkish Economy Minister Zafer Çağlayan said in the southeastern province of Diyarbakır, the symbolic center of the sixth region, yesterday.
